Visitors to Tynemouth’s Blue Reef Aquarium are being invited to take part in an underwater Easter Egg Hunt over the Bank Holiday Weekend (March 27th – 28th).


A collection of Easter eggs have been hidden in the displays around the aquarium and the challenge is to see how many you can spot to win a chocolate egg.


Keepers have enlisted the help of everything from adorable seals and otters to clownfish, sharks, seahorses and graceful stingrays to keep them safe.


There will be 10 daily activities taking place throughout the holidays (March 25th-April 10th) ranging from seal talks and demonstrations at the aquarium’s outdoor Seal Cove to close encounters with everything from miniature monkeys and piranhas in the Amazon talks and feeds.


There will be regular rockpool encounters, meet the reptiles’ session and otter talks and feeds.


Visitors will also have the opportunity to meet and find out all about the aquarium’s newest arrivals; a pair of black tip reef sharks.


There will be daily shark workshops from 12.30pm where you can find out all about the world of sharks including what the world’s largest species is, what shark skin feels like and whether all sharks are dangerous to humans.
